We’re delighted to announce that Sugar & Spice (Largs) has been shortlisted as a finalist for Business of the Year in the annual Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) Awards 2016.
Toni’s interview and presentation to the judging panel takes place in Edinburgh on Tuesday, 26th July where she is invited to give evidence of a sustainable, profitable business performance; show an ability to create jobs; provide evidence of a clear risk/reward strategy and demonstrate effective leadership and management.
There are 11 award categories open to business and professional women across Scotland celebrating and recognising the achievement of women and their contribution to the commercial success of Scotland. Introduced in 2013, the category for Business of the Year is open to businesses trading for 3 years or more. Whilst the award is made to the business, a woman must be the driving force behind it. Last year Toni picked up her 1st ASB award for her ‘Outstanding Contribution in Business’ at a glittering award ceremony in October 2015 at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow. Nominated by The Ayrshire Association of Business Women (AABW) of which Toni is an active member, the Ayrshire group were also recognised as ‘Best Affiliated Group of the Year 2015’ and picked up more awards than any other region in Scotland.
We’re hugely excited for this year with all the planned developments for a complete re-brand of the business and will be telling you lots more about this at a later date. Watch this space and please keep your fingers crossed for us in the final.
